Help me identify this glider
 
Went to Graves RC here in Orlando to buy a motor replacement for a used Radian Pro that I got, and they had this glider for US$150 bucks RTF. It seems old, with lots of room on the cockpit (before LiPo batteries I assume). Pretty wel built for an entry level guy like myself, strong motor (tested at home, very impressive compared to the Radian Pro), but no idea if it was a good deal or a waste of my hard earned money.

So, can I thermal with this bird or should I go back to my foam?

Thank you in advance for all (if any) serious contribution.

That is correct! It is a Joly de Luxe (the receipt says "used plane similar to european jely", maybe a mispelling).

Anyone with experience with this plane has something to say about it?
